Muriau Bychan Lot 2
By Private Treaty
Approximately 70 Acres of grazing land being of varying quality and abutting a local authority maintained lane, in addition to the apportionment of the associated Grazing Rights equating to the right to graze 129 head of Sheep on a neighbouring Common. The land also includes a traditional Field Barn.
Guide Price: £175,000.00
The subject lands lie in-between the 200 and 240 metre contours and whilst evidently low-lying a proportion thereof gently undulates from the valley floor. The offering is classified as being within the Grade 5 specification of the Agricultural Lands Classification 1988 and the lower-lying section has been designated as forming part of a Site of Special Scientific Interest.
The land is suitable for a traditional system of hill farming which has been customary within the region since the age of the earliest settlements. Nevertheless, we envisage that other sustainable uses, such as the recent ‘Glamping’ concept may well be an option that could compliment the current prescribed use, notwithstanding that such a proposal would naturally depend upon the grant of the requisite statutory consents.
The Grazing Rights allocated to each Lot of the lands formerly known collectively as Muriau Bychan shall pass with the respective Freehold Titles. The Rights pertaining to the Holding herein referred to as Muriau Bychan shall be apportioned in accordance with the gross area of each parcel of Freehold Lands conveyed.
Please liaise with the Agents to obtain further information in this regard.
The Instructing Party has annually maintained an adequate number of Basic Payment Scheme Entitlements to activate a Basic Payment Scheme Claim upon the subject land, in addition to the Common Land, for the duration of the said Scheme. Please note that the said Entitlements may be made available to purchase or lease by separate negotiation via the Agent.
For the avoidance of doubt we hereby confirm, to the best of our knowledge, that the Clients have not incorporated the subject land within any of Rural Payments Wales’ Agri-environment Schemes at the point of writing, and furthermore have not declared an Expression of Interest to participate in any future scheme.
It has nevertheless been drawn to our attention that a programme of subsidised Capital Works has been agreed between the Snowdonia National Park and the Clients. The contract presently relates to works upon Lots 1,2 3 and 4 of the land currently referred to collectively as Muriau Bychan. The Eden Sustainable Management Scheme is administered by the Snowdonia National Park. A detailed inventory of proposed Capital Works can be obtained from the agents or otherwise from the Project Manager, Mr Gethin Davies, acting for and on behalf of the Snowdonia National Park.
The Flock has been dispersed and no Sheep shall be made available as an Ingoing. Incomers to the area are advised to make enquiries with the local Livestock Markets of Dolgellau and Bryncir respectively who annually conduct autumnal sale fixtures for genuine Draft Ewes procured from the uplands of North West Wales and are thus fully acclimatised with the challenging terrains.
